Passenger transportation by sea between Turkmenistan and Azerbaijan rose by 10 percent in 2015 as compared to 2014, said Taleh Ziyadov, head of the Baku International Sea Trade Port.

Ziyadov made the remarks speaking to reporters March 17 on the sidelines of an event hold jointly with the US Chamber of Commerce (AmCham).

He said this increase happened thanks to Turkmenistan’s using the ro-ro (roll-on/roll-off) ships for passenger transportation.

“The ro-ro ships, purchased by Turkmenistan, are at the same time used for passenger transportation,” said Ziyadov. “They can carry nearly 200 passengers. I think these two systems [passenger and freight transportation] will complement each other.”

He added that the peak of passenger transportation accounts for summer.

Ziyadov also said the passenger transportation between the two countries will continue to grow.
